Who we are? Established in 2010, Romanian – based leather manufacturer Simina Filat Design is responsible for producing high-quality accessories, innovative design to minimize waste, use sustainable materials, and create products to have long and useful life.
Design and Designer. We design so that you fall in love with what you wear for years to come, creating a bigger impact on your wardrobe and a smaller impact on the world.
‘’Simina Filat, beyond her degree – “Bachelor of Fashion Design, Management and Accounting” is also a very prolific designer, with remarkable innovations in accessories design (bags, “objects to carry”, “content” objects). However, her most important value is that she is part of the new wave of designers living and creating in the new form of civilization, which already overwhelms us, in a new fast-moving society that changes even as fast as one can imagine.
She creates and thinks simultaneously in two value systems, one that fades, but still exists, the other that sits firmly in the position of “dominant cultural current” of our time. With a history of more than 10 years, with an important creative and artistic track record – but also with great market success – the “Simina Filat” brand has established itself as a creative, conceptual “space”, with a vision for the new wave of design.
A Thinker and A Maker in the same equation, Simina Filat has a high-performance studio/workshop, developed by her, in which she produces at the pace of her own creation. (propunere: in which she produces from her imaginative creation.) Her studio embraces modern and traditional techniques and is among the first entrepreneurial forms that provide integrated design services, offering options for co-creation or co-design, directly with the client – “prosumer”.’’
